    1.1.1) What surprising truth did the speaker discover from 20 years teaching English to foreign speakers about how well a person communicates in English ?
    How well a person communicates in English actually has very little to do with their English level
    It has a lot to do with their attitude towards English.

    1.1.2) How can a person communicate better by only changing their attitude ?
    Focus on the person you are talking to and the results you want to obtain.

    1.1.3) What are obstacles to communicating better ?
    Embarrassment, feeling of being judged, shyness, thinking about your mistakes.

    1.1.4) Why is this important to not only you but your children and your community ?
    96% of conversations involve non-native English speakers

    1.1.5) What is one thing you can do, starting today, if you want to speak with calm clear confidence ?
    Do not focus on yourself.
    Focus on the other person and what you want to achieve.

    Bonus:

    What would matter in the real world ?
    Did you understand the email or did you understand the customer so that you can take action.

    What problem is seen over and over ?
    People take the attitude they developed about English in school and they bring it into their adult life and into their work.

    In stressful situations the brain will shut down.
    3 Symptoms of brain shutting down
    1) Listening goes. You are thinking of formulating your response.
    2) Speaking goes. Vocabulary disappears. Words are forgotten.
    3) Confidence goes. Misunderstood as a lack of confidence to do the job.
